Re: January 2022 Sale

I've had my Abyss GMT on my wrist for 3 days now and it's currently 3 seconds slow so losing 1 second per day which is fantastic. The force is strong in this one :-)

Re: Large Inflation Based Price Increase Soon?

Our Unions at work have just agreed a 2 year pay deal at 2% per year. Absolutely gobsmacked they accepted it as the company has made record profits 2 years running and with inflation predicted to hit 7%. Anyway rant over, the only thing I would say on CW price rises is watches are a luxury item whic...

Re: Let's see your January sale purchases!

I was thrilled to pick up a nearly new C60 #tide in sale: 20220114_150147.jpg However it seems to have a crack in the sapphire dial: 20220114_145648.jpg I assume this crack wouldn't be expected as normal under nearly new condition? Looking carefully at the picture it appears to have originated from...

Re: January 2022 Sale

Just a quick update the Abyss has stopped now and I can confirm the power reserve on mine is 55 hours and 10 mins. So I would strongly suspect it is the SW330-2 movement :-) That's perfect Mike. Thank you. :thumbup: :thumbup: You've confirmed my thoughts. Guy Hey Guy, as you probably know already i...

Re: January 2022 Sale

My guess is CW didn't want to produce new booklets for the V2 with the correct movement and power reserve due to cost. I’ve seen manuals have stickers added somewhere that clarify updates to the text. You can do it and not look like a 2nd rate shop if the text is right and you place it in a logical...

Re: January 2022 Sale

Just checked the box and mine definitely didn't come with a tag which is probably the first time that has happened to me with a new watch. If I remember rightly when I have bought a nearly new watch in the past a tag was included as the warranty is identical to a new watch

Re: January 2022 Sale

Just a quick question for anyone who received a sale watch: did your watch come with the 60/60 hang-tag attached? I ordered a C65 diver that I am not 100% sure about keeping, but as there is no hang-tag I'm a bit unsure about returning it (as I forsee them saying I have worn it). Also didn't get a ...

Re: January 2022 Sale

Just a quick update on the V2 Abyss GMT power reserve I set 4 watches on Thursday to look at the power reserves compared to stated figure C65 Trident diver (blue) - SW210-1 - windup- stated power 42hours - actual 46 hours - not worn face up C65 Trident diver (blue) - SW210-1 - windup- stated power 4...
